Gallic acid (GA) is well known for its antioxidant and hepatoprotective activity, though its effectiveness is restricted due to rapid metabolism and elimination. To overcome these problems, gallic acid–phospholipid complex was prepared and the effect of phospholipid complexation was investigated on carbon tetrachloride (CCl4)-induced oxidative damage in rat(More)
The effect of a methanol extract, obtained from the roots of Ocimum sanctum, on mouse swimming performance were studied using three different doses. On the basis of our findings, a high dose (400 mg/kg, i.p.) of the extracts of Ocimum sanctum increased the swimming time suggesting a central nervous system stimulant and/or antistress activity. The effect(More)
BACKGROUND Recent investigations have shown that the antioxidant properties of plants could be correlated with oxidative stress defense and different human diseases. In this respect flavonoids and other polyphenolic compounds have gained the greatest attention. The plant Cytisus scoparius contains the main constituent of flavone and flavonals. The present(More)
In this article the antioxidant property of pyrazolones derivatives (PYZ1 to PYZ10) are reported. It was assessed by estimation of Malonaldehyde (MDA) and 4-Hydroxyl-2-noneal (4-HNE) as lipid peroxidation markers in myocardial ischemic reperfusion injury. The inhibition of lipid peroxidation was compared with the standard ascorbic acid. Among synthesized(More)
Methanol extract of Leucas lavandulaefolia (LLFE) was evaluated for different psychopharmacological profiles with various animal models in rats and mice. The extract showed a potential reduction in spontaneous activity and caused a significant decrease in exploratory behavioural pattern by the head dip and Y-maze test. It also showed a significant reduction(More)
The methanol extract of Rumex nepalensis Spreng. (Family - Polygonaceae) was assessed for different psychopharmacological activities in rats and mice by evaluation of general behaviour, exploratory behaviour, muscle relaxant activity and phenobarbitone sodium-induced sleeping time. The extract at doses 200 mg/kg and above exhibited a reduction in(More)
The fruit of Terminalia bellerica L. (Combretaceae) is an important ingredient of ‘Triphala’, which is a popular Ayurvedic formulation traditionally used to treat hypertension, to reduce cardiac depression and to decreases the risk factors associated with the heart. This study aimed to investigate the angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitory activity(More)
Different strength of alcohol 40.50,60,70,80,90 per cent (v/v) and absolute were utilized for the preparation of tincture of azadirachta Indica A. Juss leaves by maceration for 7, 14,21 days. 60 per cent tincture produced after 21 says of maceration showed a maximum solid content of 1.425 per cent (v/v) and sowed pH 3.15. This tincture was characterized by(More)
